Whether it’s delicious food and beverages, hanging with Mickey Mouse, or getting your hands on those rare merchandise items, EPCOT is set to celebrate the Disney 100 in a big way. You won’t want to miss out as the event is short-lived compared to other Disney celebrations and will surely be a big hit with fans. This means that many of the offerings will only be around for a short amount of time, including merchandise. Popcorn buckets are a big draw for Disney events, and the new purple metallic Mickey Balloon Premium Popcorn Bucket will indeed have Guests lined up! There’s a ton to see and do in a short period at EPCOT this fall. As EPCOT continues to unveil its transformation slowly, the Disney 100 is a welcome way to usher in new change and celebrate the evolution of the Park.
